Madewell Event | September 23, 3014


I am so very excited to be hosting a Madewell event at the Mall of America on Tuesday, September 23. It's toddler Tuesday so whether you are single, married or rocking the double stroller, I'd love to meet you! We will chat and shop and eat Jonny Pops from 11-2. I've recently become obsessed with Jonny Pops as it's SO hard to find good tasting treats that don't have high fructose corn syrup in them and are made with, well, real actual ingredients. I feel good giving these to Lue every once and awhile too because the sugar content is low. The chocolate coffee one is my absolute favorite and I've ventured off to buy another box by myself in late evening hours while Lue is asleep. The way the coffee settles into the bottom last bites of the pop just seriously make me so happy. Madewell is definitely one of my favorite stores and it's been fun to invest in pieces that are higher quality and last much longer. I find that I am spending less because I am buying less quantities of things and more staple items that last throughout seasons. The ladies are amazing at the Mall of America and they're going to have some great deals at the event too! 

Anyways, come join us! It should be a lot of fun! 

Fox Tabletop | Sweet Cherry Hand Pies with Colleen


Colleen might be the sweetest person in the world. She is a talented photographer and her heart is so intentionally full of life. We spent some time last week chatting about our lives, motherhood, relationships, intentional living and it was the biggest breath of fresh air to hear her speak about things that truly matter. She's a reminder of how important it is to surround yourself with truly incredible people who are living for things and reasons greater than themselves. We decided to tackle Food 52's Sweet Cherry Hand Pies. She got some blueberries and cherries from the downtown Mpls Farmer's Market and Lue was our little helper. These were the easiest little things to make and the most delicious petite dessert. We each had at least three and I could've eaten them for supper that night. This reminds me of a dessert that could be prepared ahead of time and frozen in the freezer and taken out spontaneously if guests were arriving later that evening. I bet they might even be good with savory items inside, like ham and cheese, topped over eggs. 

We had a truly lovely time and these images bring so much joy to me when thinking of our time together and conversation had.
